Google Play Music To Be Replaced by Youtube Music
Google Play Music to shut down starting in September, will disappear by December.
When will Google Play Music will Replaced by Youtube Music?
Google revealed recently via a support document that it will begin shutting down its Google Play Music service in September, with all subscribers off of the service—and on YouTube Music instead—by the end of December.
How many days to transfer Play Music data?
“Earlier this year, we announced our plan to sunset the Google Play Music experience,” the support document notes. “Starting September 2020, users will begin losing access to Google Play Music. This means you will no longer be able to listen to your music using Google Play Music. However, your music library will remain intact and can still be transferred to YouTube Music – you will have a minimum of 30 days after losing access to Google Play Music to complete your transfer. Not all Google Play Music users will lose access at the same time. This will happen on an ongoing basis between September and December 2020.”
Schedule For Merger of Google Play Music with Youtube Music:-
August 2020. Access to the Music Store on Google Play, and Uploads to Google Play Music through Music Manager will start to go away.
September 2020. Access to Google Play Music begins going away for some users.
December 2020. Access to Google Play Music for all users is gone.
Google announced its plans to replace Google Play Music with YouTube Music in May, but it has been plotting this transition for over two years: It launched YouTube Music in 2018, and it has been steadily updating it since. And when Android 10 launched late last year, Google finally replaced Google Play Music with YouTube Music in the stock app install bundle.
Experience with Youtube Music:-
I made the transition to YouTube Music a month or so ago and will detail my experience soon. The short version is that it’s mostly OK. Also, if you use this app for podcasts, you’ll need to move to Google Podcasts or another app.
Though December is the final deadline for being able to export from the Google Play Music app, your ability to stream from the Google Play Music app will end before then.
In September 2020, users in New Zealand and South Africa will be the first to lose access to stream or use the Google Play Music app. The rest of the world will lose their access in October.
How to move from Play Music to Youtube Music?
However, Google will continue to make your content available for export through December. Through the transfer tool released in May, Google Play Music users will be able to export their playlists, uploads, purchases, likes and more to YouTube Music. Users also can use the Google Takeout service to export their data and download their purchased and uploaded music.
How to Switch From Play Music to Spotify with Complete Playlist?
For those considering making a switch to a rival streaming service, like Spotify, there aren’t official tools available, but there are third-party options, like Soundiiz, TuneMyMusic, MusConv and others.
Google says it will also be making changes to the Google Play store and Music Manager.
Starting this month, users will no longer be able to make purchases or pre-order music from Google Play Music through Music Manager, nor will they be able to upload and download music.
What Youtube Music offers?
YouTube Music offers a variety of playlist options now, too, including collaborative playlists built with friends and new programmed playlists built by editors. Assistive technology now also makes personalized suggestions of what to add when you’re building a YouTube Music playlist.
YouTube Music service has expanded its reach across platforms, as well, with support for Android TV, Google Maps (for music while navigating) and via Google Assistant in recent days.
For any user who doesn’t opt to move to YouTube Music, Google says subscriptions will be automatically canceled.
Subscription to Youtube Red(Premium):-
Google’s strategy with music has been overly complicated for some time (not unlike its strategy with messaging and communication apps). When users signed up for YouTube Premium (previously YouTube Red), they’d automatically receive access to Google Play Music, and vice versa. And Google continued to sell YouTube Music as a separate subscription. In other words, Google created a world where it wasn’t only competing against big streaming services like Apple Music, Spotify and Pandora, it was also competing against itself.
When Google Start shifting towards YT Music?
Now it’s hoping to shift its streamers to YouTube Music. The idea came about because YouTube for a long time has been a way to access free music, thanks to a deep catalog of officially licensed music videos, live performances and other music content. So why not upsell YouTube’s freeloading music fans on an ad-free, upgraded music experience? That strategy may have worked to some extent, but it’s more recently being challenged.
Last week, Facebook announced deals with record labels to make music videos free on its platform, as well. If user behavior shifts as a result, YouTube’s ability to funnel free music fans into a premium product could be impacted, too.
Youtube Music- Advanced than Play Music & A Better Option:-
The company has been preparing YouTube Music in advance of this shift to address complaints Google Play Music users had with earlier versions of the service. This year, Google increased playlist length from 1,000 to 5,000 songs and added support for uploads (up to 100,000 tracks — 50,000 more than on Google Play Music). It has also rolled out offline listening, lyrics and an Explore tab for discovery, and a tool for transferring podcast subscriptions and episode progress to Google Podcasts.
